About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

This wonderful and romantic one bedroom guest house located on one of the best streets in Venice Beach.

Just a short bike ride or walk to the beach and just a block away from the world famous Abbot Kinney Blvd. With its shops, galleries, bars and restaurants, Abbot Kinney is the hippest street in L.A. and a world class destination.

Walking into a secret garden you are greeted by succulent fruit trees and a calming water fountain along the stone path that leads to the guest-house with its own private outdoor garden and seating area & gas BBQ.

Once inside the double doors open wide for a sweeping breeze or may be closed for privacy. With newer contemporary furniture, king sized bed & high thread-count linens you will fell like a movie star!

Watch the 40” flat screen or pop in a DVD, CD or just hook up your iPod and surf the web on your laptop with the free WIFI.

Additional amenities include hardwood floors, classic Americana kitchen with a 1920's antique stove, and private laundry room.

Loved everything

  • 5 of 5

This was my first visit to Venice beach and this cottage was great for me my wife and baby to stay.

We were only a few blocks from all the shops along Abbot Kinney, and the private garden was nice to just hang out in..

Will be back.

My only complaint would be the Dove Soap that was provided. Too many chemicals in that type of soap. Would be nice to have a more natural type soap provided for the guests that rent this..

Car: recommended

Venice Beach has more history, more people, more celebrities and more excitement than almost any other place in California! It is the #2 tourist attraction after Disneyland!

Venice Beach has its own unique lifestyle.

You can lay back with a great book or go out and do some great people watching. You can spend days just taking in all the fresh air and the happenings of Venice.

Hear the low mystical rumble of the late afternoon drum circle on the beach. This is on weekends when about 200 people gather in a giant circle on the sand and just make great rhythms, quite amazing to see and hear.

Venice Beach was recently voted the funkiest beach town in the nation.
